Pier12

Eastbourne City Centre, Eastbourne

Located 400 metres from Eastbourne Pier and 4.3 km from Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway Adventure Park, Pier12 offers accommodation right in the centre of Eastbourne. It is set 1.4 km from Congress Theatre and features free WiFi. I travelled to Eastbourne on a regular basis for work, and my first choice accommodation was always Pier12. It is a lovely accommodation that combines modern amenities with the cosiness of home through its apartment-style setup. The location of the apartments is excellent, as you are on a quiet street, yet have the benefit of being sandwiched between the centre of town and the pier. The apartments were spotless every time I stayed in them, and the beds are some of the comfiest I've slept in when travelling. The greatest standout of Pier12, however, is the owners. Rachael and Lee have gone the extra mile on multiple occasions when I've asked them to, letting me store my luggage when I was leaving late and even driving 12 miles to return an item I left behind in the apartments. Pier12 are fantastic, and to know that I am supporting such a wonderful pair of people is a delight. This place offers fantastic value given its location and the apartments' facilities. I stayed in a few other locations in Eastbourne, and I cannot recommend this place more highly!

The Garfield Guest House

Eastbourne

Set in Eastbourne, 500 metres from Eastbourne Beach and 1.2 km from Eastbourne Pier, The Garfield Guest House offers garden views and free WiFi.

The bed and breakfast offers a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with a hairdryer, free toiletries and shower. Lovely and clean, excellent helpful hosts, we booked as we went to the tennis - 25 minute walk along the seafront to Devonshire Park, dive into the backstreets for supermarkets and cafes (take food and drink with you, quite expensive to buy inside), biker night in Terminus Road every 4th Wednesday, worth a look. Lots going on at the bandstand - mainly tribute nights but we watched a brass band concert. Book before 6 on the day and get a discount. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Free on road parking outside.
